After that, know what the consequences will be for the club… No one is immune from this. I remember when it happened to us there were a lot of comments. But it can happen to anyone, with the best security service ”.

Should we put nets to avoid projectiles, create stadiums with nets everywhere and we play in a cage? No, continued Galtier. There has to be an awareness of everyone on how we have to do so that this does not happen again.
